volunteers who spent over five hundred days in isolation. after five hundred. twenty days of motion this trip are. we are proud to be true to prove that humanity can go to mass this is experiment to see basically the psychological effect a trip to mars would have on the crew and how they would work together inside such a facility now those that took part in this are looking to be part of future martian missions this whole operation was an international co-operative mission the russian space agency working with the european space agency to put this experiment into into practice now the crew itself was made up from people from all around the world three of them were russian there was representatives from china as well as from france and central america who will find out

forward to the deep brief period free of all those tensions. as the occupy protest movement script the u.s. for a second month opinions are divided over some of its aims one of them is a tax hike for rich americans who demonstrators are blaming for the economic downturn laurie harshness has been on the streets of new york to ask whether people there agree. general public has been vilifying the very rich lately so what does the public consider too much money this week let's talk about that pardon a million too much money yeah if someone has more than a million should they pay more in taxes yes they absolutely said yes but i want too much money so i'm not going to answer. those ten million too much too much for too much when one of the women one million for another how i would say if people made more than a million dollars and they have bet on their bank account should they be forced to
9:27 am
give back a moral or a moral and outs and general interestingly i saw once the to answer the question do you have enough money to curb goes like this as your wealth increases so people who don't have a lot feel that they don't have enough as the as people get wealthier a higher percentage of the think they have enough until it passes certain point whereas as you get even wealthier you could want even more so if you made ten million dollars would you i would give some of it away it's too much money are people that don't give it away and have that much in the wrong i guess it's a personal decision i just think that if you make that much money you could share it with someone that doesn't have so much should they be forced to through taxes like they do in scandinavia maybe so because sometimes if you don't force someone to do something and are going to do it no matter how much wealth you consider to be obscene the bottom line is when it comes to money it's hard for anyone to not want just a little bit more. along
